Issue/Introduction

You would like to install Symantec Protection Engine (SPE) silently using command line switches on another drive or custom path having spaces in it.

 

Environment

Release : SPE 8.x

 

Resolution

You need to enclose path in quotes and also need to escape the quotes using backslash.

Example as below:

SymantecProtectionEngine.exe /s /v"/qn INSTALLDIR=\"D:\Program Files\Symantec\Scan Engine\"

Note: CAF will always be installed on drive "C". As of now we do not support installing CAF on custom location.
